My A-Z of stuff.

I don’t really know where this post is going…I just thought an A-Z of myself would be fun. A is for anxiety and not letting it consume me. B is for the unread books that gather dust upon my shelves … Continue reading My A-Z of stuff.

How to survive…your ‘customer facing’ job role.

‘Just remember, these people pay your wages’ Those words are neither helpful nor entirely accurate. Yes okay if the customer base wasn’t there, there wouldn’t be a job, however you wouldn’t have been given that job in the first place because it wouldn’t have existed… I was going somewhere with this but I lost it. My point is that saying that to someone is dumb. It’s like telling someone to calm down when they are clearly already irate! So here’s a few tricks of the trade to survive a customer facing role. To get you through the day; plotting elaborate and … Continue reading How to survive…your ‘customer facing’ job role.

My Top 5 Inspirational Films

1. Wild – Reese Witherspoon plays Cheryl Strayed, the crazy woman who loses her Mum to cancer and decides that she has to walk over 1,000 miles to work through her grief. It’s based on a true story, the book is far better than the film (isn’t it always). I can watch this over and over, it fills me up with determination and makes me want to get off my backside and do something, mainly it makes me want to hike PCT. 2. Eat, Pray, Love – I will watch anything with Julia Roberts in it, because she is beautiful. … Continue reading My Top 5 Inspirational Films

When life hands you a wobble, just crack on.

  We’ve all been there, life is going along swimmingly, you’re juggling all of your eggs, they’re all lined up in their baskets, then suddenly there’s a tiny little shift and an egg starts to wobble, maybe it rolls to the edge of the table… Of course, you start to panic, you focus all of your effort and attention on making a flying leap to save that one egg, which probably would have been fine, maybe it might have cracked a tiny little bit but you could have scrambled it and flung it on some toast for lunch! But no, … Continue reading When life hands you a wobble, just crack on.

Just for the sake of it.

  I have around ten thousand thoughts an hour. Well it’s probably way more than that…actually I’m going to Google that right now. Okay, so the average person has around 2,000 – 3,000 thoughts per hour. With that in mind I definitely believe that my prediction of 10,000 thoughts an hour for myself is true. I have a hard time living in the now, it stresses me out that I can’t do it so I don’t push it. I live in the now when I can and when it feels natural. When I am practising Yoga or I am going … Continue reading Just for the sake of it.

“Do you have a plan?”

    “I don’t even have a pla…”   I love making plans! In fact I love the planning more than the doing. I get excited about all of these wonderful things I’m going to do, then my anxiety kicks in and I freak out. Well it can sod off. I’m busy this year and anxiety can just kiss my ass. And yes I have made a plan of things for each month, judge me all you want, I don’t care. I’m a loser. Plans are exciting and they might not always work out the way you envisage and that … Continue reading “Do you have a plan?”
